Ocean Safety, specialists in the worldwide supply, distribution, service and hire of marine safety equipment, are inviting boat owners to familiarise themselves with their essential on board safety equipment when the company opens its doors to visitors at its Southampton headquarters.

Ahead of the weekend visiting boat owners and crews will be able to book their visit, then come along on one of the two days with their liferafts and lifejackets and watch them being opened and inflated and then leave them with us to be fully serviced and certificated before the new season starts. This is a great opportunity to understand more about the how these vital products work, so that you are well prepared in case of emergency. If you want to see your own liferaft inflated or equipment opened and checked, you will need to make an appointment.

Ocean Safety's team of marine safety experts will be on hand throughout the two days between 10am and 4pm to discuss a whole range of safety products, providing advice on which is right for your boat and your boating plans. As well as having a chance to see a liferaft being inflated, visitors can take part in a live flare demonstration and explore the full Jon Buoy range of man overboard products.

During each day there will be plenty to see and do so if you just want to turn up empty handed to watch the general demonstrations and talk to our experts you will also be welcome.

To get further information and to book your time slot email . Further information on product demonstrations timings will be posted on the Ocean Safety social media pages.

Parking is available at the site, Ocean Safety, Saxon Wharf, Lower York Street, Southampton, SO14 5QF.
